Lingfield on but Newcastle abandons

TUESDAY'S meeting at Lingfield goes ahead, but Newcastle was not as lucky and has abandoned its fixture on Wednesday.

Lingfield clerk of the course Neil Mackenzie Ross inspected conditions at 8.15am on Tuesday and was satisfied racing could take place.

The going is heavy for the six jumps races and standard for the bumper on the all-weather.

Newcastle, however, had to cancel after clerk James Armstrong checked the track at 8am on Tuesday. 

He posted on Twitter: "Racing @Newcastleraces has been ABANDONED due to SNOW. 2" covering the track, still snowing, more to come. Temps this eve to drop to -5/-6c."
